Enter the 2019 Minnesota Brood Cow Contest

The Minnesota Brood Cow Contest is back and open to all Minnesota Holstein members. Do you have a special cow that has been the foundation for your herd? Maybe she has made an impact in other herds through daughters sold or sons in A.I.? How about a cow family that has been successful for you? This is your chance to promote her and her offspring! You could win a free full-color, full-page ad along with the title of Minnesota Brood Cow of the Year.

This contest is open to all Minnesota Holstein members and any living or dead female is eligible. Nominate your show winner, life-time production cow, huge index star or bull mother.

A half page or larger ad must be placed in the March 2019 issue of the Minnesota Holstein News to complete your nomination. As a reminder, the March issue includes the Midwest Holsteins News and reaches over 7,500 Holstein breeders. Costs of the ads are $400 for full page and $250 for half page. A ballot will be placed in the March issue or will be available at the Minnesota All-Breeds Convention. Voting can also be done by email; one vote per membership or paid subscription.

The winner will be notified April 2019 and will be announced in the Minnesota Holstein News June 2019 issue along with receiving a free full-page, full-color ad in this publication. Take the time to promote the foundation cow or foundation family from your herd!

Contact the MHA office today (320)-259-0637 to reserve your ad space. We will be more than happy to help you create an eye-appealing ad to gain the membership’s vote. Ad reservations are due Friday, February 8, 2019.
